LEARN TO ROW
UPLOAD YOUR PHOTOS FROM LEARN TO ROW - LINK
Our 6-hour Learn To Row program is designed to introduce freshmen and novices to rowing on the water. These optional sessions teach students how to handle equipment, proper technique on the water and the fundamentals of working together as a boat. Students do not need to participate in Learn-to-Row to join the Crew team, but it is encouraged. It's a great opportunity to get to know what high school rowing is all about. Learn-to-Row takes place at Thompson Boat Center (TBC) in Georgetown. Students should sign up for one 6-hour session of their choosing. Transportation is not provided, but we will provide roster information so parents can create carpools if desired.
Due to COVID-19 Restrictions, we are not able to offer Learn to Row Fall 2020
